Default Final Fantasy VI Eternal Crystals Version X patch.

I am a newbie on this site and I am a newbie to patches. I have been a fan of the Final Fantasy series since the original. I really miss the old style of FF games and was pleasantly surprised recently when I discovered all these different patches fans have made of their own versions of these classics. In particular, I really want to try out this Eternal Crystals Version X patch. The problem is I have no idea how to run it. I have downloaded several programs which have claimed to preform this function quickly and easily, but to no avail. I use ZSNES to play roms generally. I have tried LunarIPS, SNEStool, and IPSwin. None of them seem to work like they should. Can anybody help me?

LunarIPS is pretty much completely self-explanatory. If it's not working then you're probably using the wrong ROM. The header status of the ROM used to create the patch has to match the header status of the ROM you patch. This also applies to whether or not the ROM is interleaved. If the readme included with the patch doesn't specifically mention the above listed things, it's probably because the patch author is a stupid asshole who doesn't know what he's doing in the first place.

At the risk of sound like a dumb-ass, I don't know what you mean by header status or whether or not the rom is interleaved. Also, I think the patch author might be a stupid asshole as the readme only has info on the changes made, nothing about how to actually run the thing. I might be S.O.L.

That's funny, the copy of the hack on this very site includes a readme with very specific details about which patch is for which ROM and whether or not said ROM requires a header.

Default Also having difficulty

The Read Me file didn't contain info on how to run it. Just info on what has changed. Any help would be appreciated.

You can't run IPS patches. They're non-executable files.
